Do you have adult guardianship cases in which more than one state is involved? With our increasingly mobile society, attorneys frequently face interstate guardianship problems.

This webinar will cover the basics of the Uniform Adult Guardianship and Protective Proceedings Jurisdiction Act, passed by 37 states, DC, and Puerto Rico. The reporter for the Act, along with a prominent probate attorney, will explain the Act's provisions on initial jurisdiction, transfer of cases to another state, and out-of-state recognition and enforcement of orders, as well how the Act works in practice.
